CONDUCTOR SYSTEMS

ENCLOSED CONDUCTOR SYSTEMS

Met-Track® have an excellent range of conductor systems designed to be safe reliable power supplies for cranes, hoisting equipment, warehouse equipment, overhead conveyor tracks etc.

FEATURES

Optimum Reliability assured by the advantages listed below:

  • Low Maintenance
    The PVC housing needs no maintenance as the systems are designed with minimal brush wear in mind, thus minimising the presence of carbon deposits.
  • Maximum Power Transmission
    The brushes are positively located in the PVC housing and contact with the flat copper conductors is maintained by spring pressure. This guarantees a positive contact and power transmission.
  • Quick and Easy Installation
    Due to lightweight PVC housing and the design of accessory components, system installation is a quick and easy operation.
  • No Expansion Problems
    Due to the clearance that exists between the conductors and their location, and the clearance between the PVC housing and sliding hangers, expansion due to changes in ambient temperature is accommodated without affecting the operation of the system.
  • Extremely Long System Lengths
    These are possible by installing our expansion joints which allow for the use of the continuous copper strips.
  • High Travel Speeds
    Available on all our conductor systems.
  • High Mechanical Strengths
    The PVC housing has a combination of high flexural yield, impact and tensile strengths and is complimented by the design of associated components.
  • Self-extinguishing
    For safety reasons the housing materials have a self- extinguishing feature.

Four different conductor systems which can be tailored to suit your particular requirements, these are:

• 4Ductor® – 4 pole continuous copper conductor system
• Multiconductor® – 7 pole continuous copper conductor system
• ClickDuctor® – 4 and 7 pole jointed copper conductor system
• ProDuctor® – 7 and 10 pole continuous conductor system for automated storage and retrieval systems

UNINTERRUPTED CONDUCTOR SYSTEMS

For all but ClickDuctor®, Metreel’s conductor systems offer uninterrupted copper conductors. These flat copper conductors can be pulled from rolls into the previously installed PVC housing in long continuous lengths. The fixed electric feed point can be placed at either the end (End fed) or at a convenient point anywhere along the system (centre fed).

FEATURES

  • Optimal Contact
    The flat, smooth copper surface guarantees an optimal contact with the carbon brush
  • No Plug Connections
    The best method to reduce voltage loss is an uninterrupted copper conductor. This is essential when it concerns reliable transmission of control signals
  • Capacity Extendable
    The installation can be extended at all times and at any moment. For instance, due to a changed situation, additional or heavier copper conductors can be installed
  • Extremely Low Maintenance
    Due to the absence of plug connections the surface of the copper conductors is extremely smooth, which ensures minimal brush wear. The copper conductors as well as the carbon brushes are therefore extremely low maintenance
  • Alternative Strips
    Sliver-plated strips can be installed in the channels, for use in extreme weather conditions or other challenging applications
  • Quick Installation
    The strips can quickly and easily be pulled into the channels, using the copper cassette and a copper puller
  • Accommodation of Curves
    With our uninterrupted copper conductor systems a range of curves/bends are available on request.
